Enduring Love shows how strongly a traumatic experience can affect someone’s life. After witnessing the death of the man, everything in Joe’s (Daniel Craig) life constantly reminds him of that incident. The movie does a great job showing the torment Joe puts himself through, blaming himself for the uncontrollable incident. Jed’s (Rhys Ifans) obsession with Joe adds much unexpected drama in the film. Even though the movie moved slowly, the writing was excellent- I was very intrigued to see the resolution of all the transpiring events. The film also included a surprising, although understandable, twist at the end. I recommend this film for those who enjoy good writing, and can endure a dawdling pace.
Once again, foul language removes a film from being family friendly. There were over forty F-words in this film, along with some other non-approved words. The movie doesn’t show the man actually hitting the ground, but does show his badly broken and bloody injured legs. Jed’s love for Joe is what fuels his extreme obsession for him, including a scene where they kiss; which may be sensitive for young people. There are also two instances of people being stabbed. This film is only appropriate for adults not sensitive to the above content.
